Over the last several years, there seems to be more and more information surfacing about sexual abuse within the Boy Scouts organization. From adult perpetrators to child abusers—too many children have been sexually abused by other children or adults in the Boy Scouts.
As unbelievable as it might seem, the Boy Scouts of America has kept “perversion files” of all boy-on-boy sexual assaults that they knew about—without releasing this information to the public. As child abuse attorneys, the Mallard Law Firm has called for the release of these files to help prevent child sexual abuse from happening to anyone else in a Florida Boy Scout troop.
If your son has been abused in the Boy Scouts or anywhere else, it is important that you find an attorney who understands the ramifications of abuse and has successfully represented victims of child abuse. Attorney Damian Mallard has represented troop members who were abused in the Boy Scouts as well as other child abuse victims throughout Florida.
Because we have experience handling these types of cases, we understand their delicate nature and how important it is to keep the details confidential. We do everything we can to protect child victims while representing them to the fullest. Due to our experience handling these cases and our knowledge of the laws, coupled with our understanding of the trauma child victims endure, we are very careful how we handle these types of cases.
